Cactus League Game Thread, 3/13/2010
Here we are again with another exciting day of baseball that sort of matters but…. yeah…
There are some news bits this morning though.
* Via the Seattle Times, we have four cuts this morning in 1Bs Brad Nelson and Tommy Everidge along with OFs Mike Wilson and Greg Halman. So, anyone hoping that Everidge’s early hot hitting would somehow leave the Mariners with a different 1B platoon from what we are expecting, sorry.
* Via Drayer, Bedard has been throwing for the past ten days from 120 feet and is showing no ill effects from his August surgery. He is scheduled to throw a bullpen ten days from now. Don’t get too excited now.
* Via the Everett Herald, Hannahan has a strained groin and will be out for the next week to week-and-a-half, which means that he’ll be getting less time on the middle infield and Tui and the other J. Wilson might have a chance to make impressions in the meantime.
* Via just about everyone, the Mariners will be heading down to Tucson for two games after today, and they aren’t bringing many regulars with them. We’ll be seeing Ackley, Carp, and Tui, but not Ichiro, or Figgins (both of whom have played the last four games), or Griffey. In addition to this, Adam Moore will be catching Felix tomorrow, which I think is a first. Rob Johnson will be catching Cliff Lee on Monday.
